Boys Second, Girls Eighth at FPD/WRHS Invite

MACON, Ga. – Head boys cross country coach Shane Hall and head girls coach Holly Scott both used one common word to describe the atmosphere at Wednesday’s FPD/WRHS Run Wild Invitational at the Georgia Children’s Home: amazing.

Over 500 runners joined in on the action as members of all GHSA and middle school classifications raced to strong finishes on the day.

“It was a great day for our school and for cross country,” Hall said. “Warner Robins did a great job co-hosting with us and things couldn’t have gone better.”

Hall’s Vikings placed second overall with 93 points while Scott’s Lady Vikings took eighth with 183 points.

Will Martin placed first overall at 16:57 to lead the Vikings. Bryce Little took fourth at 18:01 as well.

“We had some guys come out and post strong times,” Hall said. “It is definitely encouraging to see our guys continue to get better.”

McKenzie Peterson took home fourth place for the Lady Vikings at 21:35. Next to cross the finish line for the girls squad was Anna Claire Stietenroth in 45th place.

“I was very pleased with our times today,” Scott said. “We continue to get better, so we’re excited.”

Holy Innocents took the overall race title in both the girls and boys meet.

Hall and Scott hope the success continues throughout all the cross country programs as the season  progresses.

“Our goal is to make it to that state meet,” Scott said. “We want to keep improving our times.”

Added Hall: “All of our teams had really good days,” Hall said. “We all showed up to run and need that continue.”
